A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water. ~Carl Reiner
Early this morning, before the sun was properly up, the boys were breathing down my neck to get the weather radar up in the vain hopes that enough rain was on the way that they could head off fishing for the day instead of to an early morning boat & a long day of working in the wind & cold. They were out of luck ~ but not for want of trying.
It hasn't been a pleasant day. Miserable in fact. Issi hogged a doona all for himself & refused to budge & the poor old heater has barely taken the edge of the chilly air. I am about to turn the oven on & do a Shepherd's Pie for dinner. Ditz will just have to not be vegetarian tonight.
Poor old Ditz hasn't really had much of a break. The weather has been simply appalling all holidays & it is back to schoolwork on Monday. Term time of course means all the music is back under way again & there is another MBC afternoon first up ~ with drinks & canapes after! Really! I am appalled. I mean, I pretty much have to go & this is one snooty, snooty school. I really shouldn't go dressed like the rag lady but I have yet to figure out how to stay warm & be stylish. Actually I've never figured out how to be stylish. Clothes & I don't have much to say to each other & so long as I'm decently covered, comfortable & warm I don't worry too much ~ an attitude that appalls my mother who always looks wonderfully put together. Mind you, I don't usually have much call to be dressed up to the nines.
I've hardly stuck my head outside at all these hols. I've been avoiding the shop. Kids everywhere & they will get under the covered area where it's nice & echo~ey & screech like banshees while their fond parents look on indulgently. Whatever...but my poor head can't handle the noise. Then there's the packs wandering down the middle of the road who move for nothing & nobody. Hello? The road is for cars! OK, so it's not just kids that do that. There's one old dear who drags her trolley right down the middle of the road too & she will do it in the middle of the night all dressed in black. Gave Dearest a very nasty fright.
I could really do with a dose of blue skies & sunny warmth right about now. It might improve my frame of mind. Just as well I don't live somewhere the sun don't shine for 6 months of the year. I would be perfectly miserable & no~one could bear me. Hrumph! I do NOT have attitude ~ just a little hiccup in the works.
